Hofud is an agricultural world located in the Sword Worlds Subsector of the Spinward Marches. Prior to the Fifth Frontier War Hofud was a member of the Sword Worlds Confederation, but following the war Hofud became part of the Imperial Client state known as the Border Worlds.

Most people on Hofud live on the larger of the two continents, Ofrein. The smaller continent, Baaten, is far less populated, with only 60 million people to Ofrein’s 520 million.

Hofud has not settled well under Imperial oversight, and the Hofud People’s Alliance, an anti-Imperial, anti-nobility guerrilla movement has taken up arms against the ruling government of Hofud. The Imperium has not yet become involved in quelling this nascent revolution, leaving it to the planetary government.

Hofud is unusual in that it has no less than 11 moons and a dust ring, an extremely high number for a non-gas giant. Hofud’s system has a single gas giant and a Class IV Starport. There is a small Imperial naval base, but all of its facilities are orbital, and are not involved with the rebellion on the ground.
